Hello again folks. This MOC is my interpretation of the 830 class diesel used by various Australian operators for the last 40 years! Some are still in use today and one passes by my suburb twice weekly (locally known as the "stonie") delivering a load of quarried stone to our local port. One of the liveries this vehicle carried is of the "Australian National" with the green and gold. Lego green and yellow lend themselves very well to a color match. I made the handrail configuration match that of the mid 1980's. This MOC is 6 wide at the deck, but 8 wide at the coupling plates. It has triple bogeys (Co-Co arrangement) and the innermost wheel sets are on a tile slider to manage the radius track. This MOC is not entirely finished, I have cut the "AN" decals by hand, and am not happy with them but am waiting for some inkjet printer decal film to arrive so I can make my own waterslide decals much more neatly and accurately. Also, If you note the port and starport sides have different colored vents (one side green, one side black) as I have'nt decided whether the reference photos show green or black grills - the vents cast a shadow that make it hard to decide if its green vents with dark shadows or just dark vents. The Jury is out but I will finalise the design soon enough. Also I originally built on a Lego 28 stud deck board, and that was too short, and have since removed it and replaced with plates, and have not fixed the stud line along the chassis. Thank you for looking at my work. Any feedback is welcome Adam
